Impact: Course Roles with corresponding permissions

Instructors can see student usernames even when the username display is off for all other users. At some institutions, this can help instructors distinguish between students with similar names. In the past, this permission was only managed by system role. This restriction created too much management burden for administrators. Now administrators can grant the permission to the correct course roles for teaching staff. The permission is “Show username even when hidden from other users.”

For administrators: Please review course role configurations to decide if instructional roles should have this permission.
